Bahrain price Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad al-Khalifa will visit the Gaza Strip on Thursday to open two UNRWA schools, AFP reported.

The Bahraini prince, who is the chairman of the Bahrain Royal Charity Organization that funded the two schools, is set to meet with Hamas Prime Minister Esmail Haniya, according to the AFP report.

The prince's visit to Gaza comes a week after Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani visited Gaza despite protests from Israel and Palestinian Authority leadership in Ramallah.
